"Actually there are more reasons why you get the ???. For instance, there is a LOT of metal in many showers walls and doors etc etc. All this impedes the signal getting out of the shower to the receiver. Plus, where is the receiver while you are…"

"The Insulet pod system is not considered by some insurance as a "durable medical device" so definitely call your insurance to make sure on the costs. Basically a tubed pump and the Omnipod are two different types of systems to many…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Lawdawgz's discussion '2 calibrations, or one?' in the group Dexcom Users
"My record is just shy of 10 weeks. Had to change due to infection building at the site. Yes, read 2 times. Some at Dexcom recommend the two readings are 5 minutes apart. The reason is to verify that the Dexcom is reading the change in BG properly.…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Lilli's discussion 'Dex often thinks I'm lower than I am' in the group Dexcom Users
"Just one note of knowledge: BG Meters are known to be very inaccurate. Certain brands also have a known problem of reading too high at certain levels. My advice, keep doing what you are doing and let the A1c test be your final judge as to…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Lawdawgz's discussion 'Advice on hip sites?' in the group Dexcom Users
"All I can provide is that the sensor in the Dexcom was made to read a VERY specific enzyme in the body. That enzyme resides mostly in the fatty tissue below the skin. For most the most focal area for this tissue is the abdomen. Especially the sides…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Bob Martin's discussion 'Actual Life of the G4 Receiver' in the group Dexcom Users
"Most insurance should cover the receiver replacement in a scheduled time. Mine was a new receiver in 1 year. My old one would have worked, but the buttons were getting flakey so I was glad to get a new one at 1 year."

Scott Wilkins replied to Bob Martin's discussion 'Actual Life of the G4 Receiver' in the group Dexcom Users
"I hate micro-usb plugs/ports. I personally think their purpose was to break easy to you'd have to pay to replace the device. Kind of a planned failure on purpose."

Scott Wilkins replied to Terry's discussion 'Studio problems' in the group Dexcom Users
"Terry, Re-installing the software doesn't fix database problems, and that sounds like what you are experiencing. You could easily delete your "patient" in the software and create a new one to fix the database. Keep in mind your Dexcom…"

Scott Wilkins replied to Linny's discussion 'When to admit defeat?' in the group Dexcom Users
"Keep in mind the Dexcom does not actually measure true blood glucose. So, no, it's not perfect. Not by a long shot. Perserverance rules, lots of it. There are times when you will want to rip it off and keep it off. Don't. The most use you…"

"One of my dislikes of the G4 receiver is it's short history display, even though it does store more history, it can't do anything with it. I was hoping the app would allow this, but seeing that it doesn't really is a let down. 24…"

Scott Wilkins replied to MarlboroNick's discussion 'loss of insurance' in the group OmniPod Users
"Have your Doctor write a letter of "medical necessity", help him with it too. Make it sound like nothing else will work. This is a normal process for many insurance, so they are used to seeing these letters. That's my suggestion, and…"
